May 2 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg's Mariko Ishikawa reports on farmer Takeshi Yamada, whose land in Iitate village in Japan has been affected by hazardous levels of radiation leaking from the Fukushima Dai-Ichi power plant. Villagers of Iitate, about 40 kilometers from the plant, are being told by the government to stop farming and evacuate by the end of the month. Fukushima prefecture is Japan’s 10th largest beef grower and fourth biggest rice grower. Yamada, 62, spoke with Bloomberg's Aya Takada at his farm on April 21. (Source: Bloomberg)
